Doorman in Formant - Metrist - Fifth Wall

This is still only the second release by the 19-year-old Cambridge producer, who is knocking out sounds and shapes of startling maturity. The four tracks you’ll find on the vinyl release are Sellotaped together with a grubby industrial stickiness that immediately appeals to an introspective headphone experience, but would sound particularly effective bleeding out of a Berlin warehouse at 9am Monday morning. Explore.

High Stakes - Dave Leyrock - #138

To the rapidly burgeoning traditional trance tempo label convention comes Infrasonic's contender, #138. Leyrock's intro is competent if largely uneventful. We can forgive him that, as the meat of the track is more impressive. The lead riff's intuitive note arrangement is well developed and with a precisely timed filter release, it lands with quite some impact at the apex of the drop. 

White Walkers - Johann Stone - Discover Dark

Club owners: looking for something to strip the old paint job from your sound emporium? This should do it. Bellicose bass, marching drums, erupting acid (sulphuric, probably) and a scorching tempo - it's all here. Wrapped around a spoken vocal (Game of Thrones, at a guess), this falls somewhere between sinister and outright scary. Somewhere in amongst this is Steve Morley (of early semi-classic 'Reincarnations' fame) on the remix. 

Genesis Tracks - Various - Sistrum

Patrice Scott's Sistrum ventures down a darker, more tracky route than usual with Johannes Volk's 'Steam' and the gurgling 303s of 'Future Acid Test' from the mysterious Shariff Anderson. However, fans of Scott's deep sound need not fear as his 'Quasar' track as Modular One is up there with Sistrum's finest.
